Portugal is building a wave farm to harness power from crashing waves, and convert it to electricity. They expect to use the wave farm to generate power for 2,000 homes.

Finavera in the US is also pursuing wave technology, and has some farms along the West Coast.

Ocean waves can provide a lot of energy, and while this technology needs to be researched further for its impact on the ocean ecosystems, it’s an option, and that’s what I like.
